Jahleen & Andreas were married in an emotional ceremony at St Sophia’s Cathedral in Bayswater, central London.
I’m fortunate enough to have photographed several Greek weddings, and this was my fourth visit to St Sophia’s. It’s one of the most stunning churches that I’ve worked in. Beautiful gold leaf walls leading up to the incredible dome in the heart of the church, which is lit by the huge stained glass windows on 3 sides. Warm in the winter and cool in the summer (thankfully, as I’ve worked there in all extremes of weather) and with definitely the nicest, most friendly priests you could ever wish to meet. How nice to be greeted like an old friend by the priest just before the ceremony?
After the ceremony, we moved down into Holborn to the Renaissance Chancery Court hotel which was to host the reception. Thankfully the hotel was big enough to accommodate 200+ guests, and the valet parking staff were kept busy finding room to park all of the guests cars!
Greek wedding photographers have a great time, there’s always something going on and your feet don’t really touch the floor for the whole wedding! Time flies, as they say…
Here’s a small selection of images from Jahleen and Andreas’s day. I’m looking forward to photographing Andreas’s sister Maria’s wedding later this year.
